CONECA (pronounced: CŌ´NECA) is a national numismatic organization devoted to the education of error and variety coin collectors. CONECA focuses on many error and variety specialties, including doubled dies, Repunched mintmarks, multiple errors, clips, double strikes, off-metals and off-centers—just to name a few. In addition to its website, CONECA publishes an educational journal, The Errorscope, which is printed and mailed to members bimonthly. CONECA offers a lending library, examination, listing and attribution services; it holds annual meetings at major conventions (referred to as Errorama) around the country.

CONECA was formed through a merger of CONE and NECA in early 1983. To learn more about the fascinating HISTORY OF THE ERROR HOBBY and THE HISTORY OF CONECA, we encourage you to visit us our main site Here

  • The error coin of the VNA coin convention Struck dime, struck by Lincoln cent dies !

    Mike and Lee Anne stopped by the CONECA table and were kind enough to share a coin they had. Back is the early 1980's Lee Anne was a cashier and she cracked open a new roll of dimes. As she poured the dimes into the register, she noticed that was sort of odd. So she replaced this dime with another and thought she would ask her husband. Lee Anne kept this dime since the early 1980's and finally decided to break it out and let us have a look at it.

    When I first saw the coin, I started to chuckle. I knew what it was, and I knew it was a great find. I told them to let the ANACS rep who was right next to me, see the coin as well and I said - watch his reaction. We all had a good laugh. The eventual question of how much the coin was worth, and whom could they eventually liquidate the coin to came into the conversation. I told them what the value I thought it was worth, and it would be worthy of sending in to get certified. I told them once the coin is certified genuine, it is easier to liquidate via a large error dealer or other means, such as an auction house.

    They were very happy once they realized what they had, and I hope they get what they are asking for the coin.

    Without further delay, here are the photos of the coin !

    Gary, awesome piece to get to hold. I know of a dealer who had several of these slabbed that are for sale, just looked and he is down to one. NGC 1c 1998 Cent on 1997 Roosevelt 10c Dual-Date Double-Denomination MS-67 has a pretty hefty price tag as well.
